Former customer currently entertaining the idea of a return to the platform(Surprise to some, i am sure lol)

Anyway here are my question as of now(If i think of more i'll add them)


My questions are as follows...

1. Is there a Mod for a Store?
Something that allows users to gain forum money/points that can be utilized to allow them to "Purchase" virtual things from the store.

i seem to remember a mod being made/discussed sometime last year that had like a credit system but you couldn't do anything with the credit/points which made it entirely useless for me.


2. What type of Profile customization does XF currently support? I want to say i think i saw cover photos may be apart of the core or maybe it was a mod...I am not sure really. But i do want to know if users have the ability to customize their profiles.

3. Is there(Either built-in or 3rd party) a way to showcase recent POSTS . I know there was a mod when i used it that showed the recent threads when someone created a new thread but i want to make it easier for people to see when new posts are made in already existing threads without needing to go to View New posts tab

4. I know about taiga chat pro but are there any other decent chat add-ons i should check out? I used ajax chat last year when we used XF which was not that good of an experience.
@Russ knows my thoughts and preference to IP chat on IP Board so he knows that this one is a biggie to me :p

anyway thanks for the help in advance :p

Nothing in core, there are add-ons for cover photos though.

These built in pages display new posts as threads:
http://xenforo.com/community/find-new/posts
http://xenforo.com/community/find-new/posts?recent=1

There might be a block available for the widget framework to display a listing of new posts.

1: ******* has a digital item store (siggie stuff etc)
2: with alittle mod work you can do pretty much anything for profiles, i used to have a system where members could adapt the css of their profile , add cover images, music etc.
3: there is a widget for it, select threads render and selected recently updated (recently updated = new posts)
4: my site enjoys cometchat, 3rd party but combines chatroom and messenger well.
